Drouin/Olsen - A Drawn Horizon
A DRAWN HORIZON is Drouin/Olsen's first album since their extremely well received 2011 release ABSENCE & FORGIVENESS, and finds them in fresh territory once again with two improvised studio recordings which trace the edges of ambient music.
Recorded live at Jamie Drouin's Victoria home in mid-November 2012, just before Drouin relocated to Berlin, A DRAWN HORIZON represents a distinct shift in the language of their longterm duo - gone are the icy gestural crackles of Drouin's synth, to be replaced by sombre harmonics. Olsen's technique during these sessions is also more stripped down, favouring a close microphone to his signature piezos, which intensifies the presense of the room and the richness of the objects used.
